The Opel Mokka is one of the firm’s bestsellers on the Blitz, and by releasing an electric version technically very close to the Peugeot e-2008, the German firm intends to gain valuable market share. And to spice up its commercial offer, Opel is presenting a particularly attractive financing offer of 185 euros per month for its electric SUV. Decryption.
In the world of 100% electric SUVs, there are famous French models such as the Peugeot e-2008 or Renault Mégane E-Tech, there are Germans with EQA and other BMW iX1s, but there are models that we forget too much: the Opel Mokka-e. It is the technical cousin of the e-2008 and this model has an engine, battery and equipment very close to the French SUV.
Opel is offering an interesting financing offer for its Mokka-e with monthly payments starting from 185 euros per month. Thus, deciphering the offer Škoda Enyaq iV, available from 299 euros per month, Kia EV6 from 297 euros per month, MG ZS EV for 99 euros per month, Peugeot e-208 for 149 euros per month, Renault Mégane E-Tech for 248 € per month, Volkswagen ID.3 for €229 per month, Renault Twingo E-Tech for €79 per month, Tesla Model 3 for less than €400 per month, Mini Electric from €350 per month, Hyundai Kona Electric from €139 per month, electric Fiat 500 from 109 euros per month, Nissan Leaf from 99 euros per month, Volkswagen ID.4 from 309 euros per month, Opel Corsa-e from 145 euros per month, it’s the turn of Mokka-e, which is 40 euros more expensive than its younger sister Corsa-e.
Which model Opel Mokka-e is offered for 185 euros per month?
As with most “from” financing offerings, this is an entry-level model, even if Opel has it as the second trim level in the lineup, as the electric Mokka isn’t available in the base version. Thus, this is the Opel Mokka-e in the Edition version with a number of rather interesting equipment:
- 16″ 5 split-spoke alloy wheels in Silver;
- 7-inch digital instrument cluster;
- Manual air conditioner;
- LED daytime running lights;
- Bluetooth multimedia radio 7-inch color screen;
- Charging cable Mode 2 – 3.7 kW.
It lacks some essentials such as parking aids or a reversing camera. The base color is quite original as it is a “Vert Ikone” model. On the other hand, if you want to add one or two options (including colors), you are immediately out of the offer and the monthly payments increase. It’s also good that alloy wheels are available as standard.
All Opel Mokka-e are equipped with an electric box 136 horsepower and 260 Nm of torque. The battery has a capacity of 50 kWh and allows 340 kilometers through the WLTP cycle. The Mokka hasn’t received the 2008 Peugeot e-2008 update, which now allows it to show a more generous autonomy of 362 km.
What are the conditions for participation in the Opel Mokka-e LLD program?
This is a long-term rental offer for 36 months and a maximum of 500 kilometers per month. To access your monthly mileage, Opel uses its car’s connectivity capabilities. It is equipped with a SIM card, which allows you to manage an emergency call, as well as connected features (myOpel), such as remote activation of the air conditioner. The same SIM card can be used to track the kilometers traveled by the driver. For each additional kilometer, a fee of 7 euro cents is charged..
The site states that the offer for 185 euros per month is subject to contribution 2000 euros. The base contribution is €10,500 but is absorbed by the €6,000 environmental bonus and the €2,500 conversion bonus, which requires the old car to be scrapped.
To qualify for a conversion bonus, the old diesel or petrol model must be scrapped. The old scrapped vehicle must be a car or van with a gross weight not exceeding 3,500 kg. The date of first registration must be before 2011 for diesel engines and before 2006 for gasoline engines.
The vehicle must have been owned by the beneficiary for at least one year and the reference tax income per unit shown on your previous year’s income tax notice must be less than or equal to 13,489 euros.
How much will the Opel Mokka-e LLD offer cost you?
For three years of long-term lease, your Mokka-e will cost you 8 475 euros. Opel lists its car on its website from €36,500, the €6,000 environmental bonus and the €2,500 conversion bonus are non-deductible. This gives us, after deductions, the model displayed by the price list on 28,000 euros. You should still be eligible for a conversion bonus because, as you saw above, this won’t necessarily be the case for everyone.
Starting from this price, you will pay for three years of rent 30.2% of the value of your car. This is a total discount for three years for this type of vehicle. Since the offer is not a LOA, there is no option to buy back the vehicle. Therefore, it will be necessary to return the car at the end of financing.
As always, be aware of refinishing costs, which can be expensive at the time of return. We advise you to do this earlier at the bodybuilder, it will cost you less than at all with your dealer. If you return the car to your dealer after LLD, they will also be a little less careful about repair costs.
What are the advantages of the Opel Mokka-e LLD offer
Undoubtedly price main advantage of this offer. A 100% electric SUV, relatively well-equipped and (despite some pettiness) for less than 200€/mo, it’s quite a bargain. Even better, the Opel Mokka-e is slightly better equipped than the e-2008, while being slightly cheaper and, for once, more original, as the Mokka is a little less common on our roads.
The fee is not very high for this type of funding, even though it is heavily absorbed by various government grants. Without them, the premium would be much higher, or conversely, the monthly payments would easily exceed 400 €/month, which becomes a completely different budget.
What are the disadvantages of the Opel Mokka-e LLD proposal
The offer is directly dependent on the conversion bonus, a help that only a few customers are eligible for. The prescribed mileage for three years is very low: only 18,000 kilometers for the lease term. (500 km times 36 months). This will suit most users for everyday use, but doesn’t leave much room for long-distance travel, not to mention you have to pay 7 cents for an extra kilometer.
To make matters worse, the Opel Mokka-e has the same engine as the Peugeot e-208 or Corsa-e, an engine that has a certain kWh appetite. As a result, the power reserve will not exceed 200 kilometers, for example, on the highway. On the other hand, purely urban use, 400 km per charge are possible. It remains to decide on your use.
